Title: Tunnel Vision or Tunnel of Love? Ṭāhā Ḥusayn and Sayyid Quṭb’s Reactions to Nazism in the Context of Egyptian Nationalism

Abstract: In this master thesis I explore whether we can discover a link between the positions on nationalism and Nazism taken by Ṭāhā Ḥusayn and Sayyid Quṭb. In other words, does their particular redefinition of Egypt after independence from Britain lead them through a tunnel of love/hate, directly to the other end, i.e. a particular response to Nazism? Or is the path not necessarily as straight as we might think it to be?
